Crews remain at the scene Wednesday of the large fire that included businesses and apartments.
Several streets around the Heritage Building on East Main Street in downtown Auburn are closed because of the fire that gutted the historic building Tuesday and destroyed nearly an entire city block.
Flames reignited Wednesday morning.
The blaze was initially reported as a dryer fire, a Valley Fire spokeswoman said. An official cause for the fire has not been released.
A spokeswoman for MS Property Management, which rents apartments in the building, says there are more than 35 units in the building. One man was rescued from the building, but he wasn't injured.
Some residents had to leave so quickly that they ran out of the building without shoes.
Red Cross responders were on scene to help people displaced.
Auburn's Heritage Building was constructed in 1921. It was remodeled in 1990, according to property records.
